Ashley Judd suing Harvey Weinstein

Composition of Ashley Judd and Harvey Weinstein

"On many occasions, Harvey Weinstein insisted on meeting with plaintiff in isolated environments for business purposes, made sure that no other persons or bystanders were around when having business meetings with plaintiff, demanded sexual contact, and threatened plaintiff if she would not give him what he wanted, and forcing himself on plaintiff despite repeated requests to stop", the suit says.

Ashley Judd sued Harvey Weinstein on Monday, saying the former movie mogul hurt her acting career in retaliation for her rejecting his sexual advances.

"Ali Canosa was a friend who had worked for The Weinstein Company for 10 years, traveled the world for the company and held several influential roles; overseeing many projects throughout the years". Jackson was considering Judd for a major role in his "Lord of the Rings" movies, and had met with her about the role.

Judd's lawsuit follows an allegation by Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson previous year that Weinstein told him Ashley Judd and fellow actor Mira Sorvino were both "nightmares to work with and we should avoid them at all costs" when casting the fantasy blockbuster. He then "appeared in a bathrobe [and] asked Judd to watch him shower and to let him massage her". The allegations echo those Judd made in The New York Times in October.

"Weinstein succeeded in blacklisting Ms Judd and destroying her ability to work on what became a multibillion-dollar franchise with 17 Academy Award wins and many more nominations", Judd's lawsuit alleges.

Judd, 50, had no idea why she wasn't cast in the "Lord of the Rings" films until Jackson came forward past year, the lawsuit says.

Behind the scenes, though, Mr. Weinstein dispatched a team of defense lawyers and publicists to undermine Ms. Battilana's credibility, a tactic employed by Mr. Weinstein for decades to silence allegations and threaten accusers. Judd's attorney, Theodore Boutrous of Gibson Dunn, said that any recovery from the suit would be donated to a charity that benefits women.

She said that he repeatedly sexually assaulted and raped her between 2010 and 2014. Jackson apologized for playing any unwitting role in the damage done to the women's careers, and the lawsuit is quick to absolve him of any wrongdoing.

Judd, a leading member of the "Time's Up" movement against sexual harassment in the workplace, is seeking unspecified damages and a jury trial.

Canosa says she was sexually assaulted in a NY hotel room, "sexually assaulted, verbally assaulted, bullied and intimidated multiple times" in Los Angeles, "sexually assaulted and raped" in Malaysia, and "physically assaulted and verbally abused" inside Weinstein's room in Budapest.
